All Individuals 18 or Older are Eligible to Receive Booster Doses
On Friday, November 19th, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their eligibility recommendations for the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 booster doses to include all individuals 18 or older who are six months out from having received their second shot of either the Pfizer or Moderna two-dose primary series.
As a reminder, the Food and Drug Administration and CDC have also approved a “mix and match” approach so that individuals may receive a booster dose of a different vaccine than they initially received. If you have questions, please refer to the CDC and FDA websites and contact your healthcare provider.
The New Jersey Department of Health is encouraging all individuals who have not yet received a vaccination, to do so ahead of holiday gatherings and travel.
A complete list of NJ’s vaccination centers is available online at covid19.nj.gov/pages/finder. Feel free to reach out to the NJ Vaccination Call Center at (855) 568-0545 if you need assistance in finding or scheduling an appointment.
Have a great week, and take care!
Mayor, Mendham Township
